Please view my profile.

I've been working our with RIPPETOE for 5 weeks. Eating 'clean bulk' for almost 2 months.

My chest size is the same
My waist size is significantly smaller.

Would these results see correct to you?

Have you been losing weight?

My guess is that youre not eating nearly as much as you think you are, or you are -- it just isnt enough.

Rippetoe requires you to eat ALOT and yes, drink whole milk.

ANY bulking program requires you to eat along.

I gained about 4 pounds. Apparently I am not eating enough. But I have no complaints in losing my waist size. I'll be posting a picture in 5 days or so

4 pounds in 2 months seems almost perfect to me, especially if you are losing fat. Building muscle is slow progress, if you start eating enough to gain 1-2 lbs per week as some here would suggest i think a lot will be fat.

Maybe it's the angle and the lighting of the photos but in your April shots your arms look slightly bigger than in March.

Keep it up!

P.S. It's a half-pound of muscle per week, MAX, isn't it?

Could be. I know I like the feeling that my body looks more solid than in March.

I need to continue to eat a good diet also. I slacked this week.

changing body comp takes time, losing or gaining weight can be fast... but best at a steady place, for better long term body comp. slow muscle gain with little fat added, slow fat loss with little muscle replaced, the fat loss going quicker than the muscle building though due to the limits on how much muscle can be built through your hormonal pool, rebuilding time, genes, etc.
